List of Gloves Manufacturers in China

Posted on Leave a comment

Looking for glove suppliers in Mainland China? In this article, we list factories located in Zhejiang, Hebei, Guangdong, and Fujian – covering everything from safety and sports gloves to knitted and leather gloves.

In addition, we also explain why it’s essential to create a comprehensive product specification, regardless of whether you intend to buy custom-designed (OEM) or private label (ODM) gloves.

What should I include in my product specification?

When I speak to our customers on the phone, I often say that a product is only as good as its specification. In a way, you only get what you specify in terms of design, quality, and materials – nothing more or less.

As such, it’s crucial to understand what defines the design and quality of your gloves.

This is what I suggest you to include in your product specification:

  • Design drawings
  • Sewing patterns
  • Size chart
  • Bill of materials (e.g. fabrics and buttons)
  • Logo files
  • Care label

Planning to import caps or other headwear from factories in China? In this article, we list cap and hat suppliers in Guangdong, Jiangsu and other provinces.

In addition, we also answer key questions about what to include in your techpack, common quality issues and minimum order quantities.

Where are most Cap factories located in China?

Most export-oriented cap and headwear suppliers are located in Fujian, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, and Guangdong. If you’re planning to visit suppliers in this industry you’re quite likely to find yourself in at least one of the following cities:

  • Guangzhou, Guangdong
  • Dongguan, Guangdong
  • Xiamen, Fujian
  • Quanzhou, Fujian
  • Zhenjiang, Jiangsu

What should I include in my techpack?

While most factories can present showrooms full of demo products they’ve made for other customers, they still expect you to provide a complete techpack. These files must be included:

  • Design drawing
  • Sewing pattern
  • Bill of materials (fabric, color codes, velcro, and other parts)
  • Care label
  • Logo / Embroidery files
  • Size chart

While it may seem like a shortcut to send over a reference sample to the factory, that’s rarely the case. We’ve dealt with many cases involving buyer’s that fail to provide clear product information to their factories – something that often results in severe quality issues.

Looking to design your own T-shirt or launch your knitwear collection? Outsourcing to China, or other low-cost countries, may be your only option. In this article, I explain what you need to know when selecting a clothing manufacturer, substance regulations, material quality and managing the product development and production process.

Regardless of whether you’re an apparel startup looking to try out a new product line, or consider yourself the next Karl Lagerfeld, this article is packed with actionable advice for you. But first, I’ll explain why buying wholesale clothing from China is rarely an option.

Buying wholesale clothing from China?

The Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) of clothing and textile items is often 300 to 500 pcs, per design. That translates into a major investment, assuming you want to launch an entire collection.

Many importers assume that the solution to this is by skipping manufacturing and purchase off shelf clothing from wholesalers. Continue reading Clothing Manufacturers in China: How to Find the Right Factory

Compared to other export nations in the region, Cambodia is a fairly small player in terms of population. However, the country is a major player in the textiles industry, which makes up 80% of Cambodia’s total exports.

In this article, we list some of Cambodia’s leading garment manufacturers and point you in the right direction to find alternative suppliers.

Cambodia Garment Industry Overview

A large number of Cambodia’s garment manufacturers are owned and operated by foreign companies. Many of which are from Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan – but there are quite a few European players as well.

Further, Cambodian garment factories procure large quantities of fabrics and other components (e.g., velcro, zippers and buttons) from suppliers in Mainland China.

It’s also important to mention that some garment suppliers have been subject to criticism over extremely low wages, and poor facilities. That said, a few bad suppliers should not be allowed to tarnish the reputation of the entire textiles industry in Cambodia – as it provides desperately needed jobs and access to capital.

Also notice that many Silk suppliers are not apparel makers. They supply silk fabrics, but you may need to work with another factory to produce the final goods. Continue reading Silk Suppliers in China: A Complete Guide

Posted on Leave a comment

OEKO tex standard fabrics
OEKO Tex Standard 100 is a standard used to check harmful chemicals and heavy metals in apparel and other textile products.

Many Importers are familiar with OEKO Tex Standard 100, but are still uncertain whether compliance is required by law, and how the entire certification process works.

In this article, we answer some of the most common questions clothing and textiles importers have about OEKO Tex Standard 100:

  • What is OEKO Tex Standard 100?
  • Is compliance required by law?
  • What is the difference between Standard 100 and REACH?
  • How do I find Standard 100 certified manufacturers?
  • How do I verify OEKO Tex Certificates?
  • How do I book lab testing?

What is OEKO Tex Standard 100?

OEKO Tex Standard 100 is an international lab testing and textile certification system, applicable to both fabrics and finished clothing.

OEKO Tex, which is an independent organization based in Switzerland, created the 100 Standard as a collection of several international regulatory frameworks:

However, OEKO Tex takes it one step further than the US and EU, as the 100 Standard also includes the following:

  • Important legal regulations, such as banned Azo colorants, formaldehyde, pentachlorophenol, cadmium, nickel, etc.
  • Numerous harmful chemicals, even if they are not yet legally regulated.
  • Numerous also environmentally relevant substance classes

In other words, OEKO Tex Standard 100 sets the bar higher than any government or state agency in the world.

For Importers selling in several countries and markets, ensuring OEKO Tex Standard 100 is simply a matter of practicality, as you can be sure that you match the highest standard there is.

Notice: REACH is an EU regulation, that restricts hundreds of chemicals and heavy metals in textiles, CPSIA, which is only required for children’s products in the United States, restricts lead content in textiles. Continue reading OEKO Tex Standard 100: A Complete Guide
